Today, a virus called “coronavirus” also known as COVID -19 is spreading all over the world. It has spread to all the countries of the world and is affecting people in a large number. Many people have died because of this deadly virus. It is spreading rapidly in European countries and all the countries are destroyed because of this. No one is there to control it. Even scientists are helpless and can’t find a cure for it. Until now, no vaccine has been made to get rid of this so-called coronavirus. The only cure for coronavirus is to wash hands for 20 seconds, maintain a safe distance from people, and use sanitizer frequently.
Most people infected with the COVID-19 virus will experience mild to moderate respiratory illness and recover without requiring special treatment. Older people and those with underlying medical problems like cardiovascular disease, diabetes, chronic respiratory disease, and cancer are more likely to develop serious illness.
The COVID-19 virus spreads primarily through droplets of saliva or discharge from the nose when an infected person coughs or sneezes, so it’s important that you also practice respiratory etiquette (for example, by coughing into a flexed elbow).
“The coronavirus will not come to your home until and unless you go outside to take it”
The virus has destroyed the economy of the whole world. The whole world is lockdown and people seek no solution for it. As the days are passing by, a lot of people are getting unemployed.
To be safe, most people are staying indoors. So, how can we be safe while at home?
- It is advisable to disinfect surfaces that come into contact with people often. Using Clorox disinfecting wipes and certain Lysol sprays, clean surfaces like tables, door handles, keyboards, light switches, and remote controls.
Avoid touching eyes, nose, and mouth
- Our hands touch many surfaces and pick up viruses. By touching our faces, the hands can then transfer the virus to the eyes, nose, or mouth from where the virus can enter the body and cause illness.
Home deliveries, picking up mail
Many people are choosing home deliveries over having to go to the shops. But that is not without its risks. To limit the danger of a delivery worker potentially passing on the infection, ask them to leave the goods on your doorstep.
Choose e-payments over cash. If you must meet the delivery worker, keep a two-meter (six-foot) distance.
At home, when possible, disinfect the delivered items with health agency approved disinfectants.
Wash your hands with soap or alcohol sanitizers after picking up your mail.
- Avoid having guests. Where this is not possible, maintain social distancing and no shaking hands or hugging.
Following good respiratory hygiene is essential in keeping safe.
Cover your mouth and nose with your bent elbow or tissue when coughing or sneezing.
Dispose of the used tissues immediately, and sanitize your hands.
- Consult your doctor, then isolate yourself. Avoid sharing washrooms with others, if possible. Disinfect surfaces that you have touched.
Staying safe outside
When leaving home to get essential goods such as groceries or medicine from pharmacies, it is advised that only one person does this task. This will limit the number of people exposed to potential risks.
When outside, maintain social distancing. Wear a mask and gloves if you have them. In grocery stores, wipe trolley handles before using them.
When you get back home, wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds and disinfect the purchased goods.
People must keep themselves and other people safe from getting infected from the virus by taking precautionary measures. Avoid going to crowded places, keep social distance (around 6 feet) from a person. If you go out to buy some stuff, wear a mask and gloves. As soon as you return home, wash your hands with soap or a handwash for 20 seconds so that you can stay safe from the virus. Every person must keep a sanitizer with him or her so that they can use it wherever they are and clean their hands.
It is a matter of life and death. People are not taking it seriously because of which the cases are increasing day by day. The small unseen virus is doing big losses to the world. People are very scared and nervous and don’t know what to do. the governments of all the countries are taking necessary steps to make their people safe from this pandemic. People are advised to stay in their homes.
